You are welcome Miranda! The cream would be heavy cream or for those living in UK whipping cream. Enjoy!

Hi in one of the recipes you mentioned a small tub of cream cheese, how much exactly? Because small tubs vary from where you live!

Thank you for the recipes!

Thanks! I always have such a hard time trying to make anything other than Ganache. Im usually worried the filling won't be solid enough to hold its shape!
